What damage may occur if used?

Appreciate your help.

Doc here,

Not sure I know what your asking..

But if referring to the primary side of the coil it will be 20 amps..12v divided by 0.6=20...

If thats the case, most stock ignitions are designed for about 10 amps..the wire gauge will be undersized and could cause a meltdown in the harness or fire, and if fused it will keep blowing fuses..
